Hi all, This is totally last minute but a friend and I are going out for drinks and appetizers tonight, Providence/Cranston area, and would like to try somewhere we haven't been. I think the holiday season has zapped our brains, because neither of us can think of anywhere to go. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

    Any more information? What kind of atmosphere - (sports bar, more upscale)? Price range?

      We really could do any of it, as long as they make good drinks and have yummy appetizers. We could dress up or dress down, just want someplace fun.

        I like 10 Steak and Sushi.

        Temple - it gets' mixed reviews on the board.

        Zooma has a big bar area. I can't remember how the appetizer selection is.

        Red Stripe and Bravo are mentioned frequently and favorably on this board.

        Capital Grill and Ruths Chris have a good wine by the glass selection and nice bars to hang out. I was not very happy with either the food or the service at Ruth's Chris though. It was just after they opened so maybe things have improved.

        3 Steeple maybe.

        Local 121 has a beautiful bar and a drink list that sounds intriguing, but they haven't been getting good reviews on the board. I have only had a drink there shortly after they opened.

        If I think of something else, I'll add another post.

        Have fun!

          Thank you! I was thinking Local 121 too because the drinks are fantastic and it's so pretty inside, but the food is definitely spotty. Zooma is our standard (great bar menu @ zooma actually, I like it better than their dinner menu), so maybe we'll try one of the others....10 is definitely a possibility.
